Inauguration at La Chaux de Fonds

Gare Chaux de Fond 3

The inauguration of the Place de la Gare in La Chaux de Fonds took place mid October 2015. It was marked by a display of slides projected onto surrounding buildings accompanied by music. See the gallery for more photos.

Alexander Hahn

I have added several photos to the Art gallery taken at the opening of Alexander Hahn’s exhibition entitled All the World’s a Stage that took place at the Kunstraum Oktogon, Bern on Saturday September 12th. I hadn’t seen Alexander for nearly 25 years when I was in my ‘video’ phase. It was really good to meet up, although a busy opening is not necessarily the best place.

I had a quick look back in the archives and immediately found several articles I wrote about Alexander. Here is one in English from the first and only issue of the bilingual Scope Magazine in which Alexander was the feature video maker. It dates from November 1992.

New gallery: Re-definitions

IMG_0113

See the new gallery of illustrated definitions from the Re-définitions exhibition that took place late August – early September 2015 in the BLS railway station of Saint-Blaise, Switzerland. The idea was to rethink the definition of a number of lesser-known French words in the hope of sparking off the imagination. English translations are available.

Hard times for Julius

Hard times for Julius

Life’s not so easy for Julius, what with the cows breaking into the garden and knocking him off his plinth. Not even Brutus caused so much pain and destruction! See other photos in the Snapped gallery.

Flooding at La Tene

La Tene. Flooding Spring 2015.

La Tene, one of the two historic hearts of celtic civilisation, is only a few kilometres from where I live. With the recent flooding, it is hard not to imagine how the Celts would have coped back then. See more picture of the flooding in there Secret Paths Switzerland Gallery.
